Roll over Beethoven, and tell Tchaikovsky the news.
I love that fact the originator of modern music ended up worth millions and lived to 90. Justice.
Loved listening to Chuck Berry through the years.
Maybe I’ll download his music on Pandora today and kick back and relax! RIP, Chuck!
I love the fact that a bank robber, rapist, child abuser, and person who put cameras in his restaurant’s restrooms has lived until 90 and being rich.
Sir Jimmy Saville’s legacy was big in him.
You know who else was a stellar human being? Bing Crosby. Look, they’re all assholes but that doesn’t negate their talent. It’s when they’re assholes and have no talent that I object.
There are no angels. Never have been, never will be. Berry was a very troubled man. He also was a talented man. One fact does not negate the other. Just like Micheal Jackson. Some people refuse to believe what he did since he was never convicted and will purchase and listen to his music. Others believe he was guilty and paid (settlements) his way out of it. You can refuse to purchase their products and never watch or listen to them, or you can separate the artist from the art and go with that. Either way, the choice is yours and you are free to make it (for now, at least).
